Fulham V Liverpool | Tactical & Stats Preview

Fulham V Liverpool | Tactical & Stats Preview

And what a week that was. From Chelsea to City and back again. Two fantastic performances put in by the players. Then right back down to earth with the hide-under-the-duvet moment when we found out the unfortunate news of Lucas's bad injury. After putting in a couple of bone crunching displays against City and Chelsea, Lucas was just starting to get the far reaching acclaim most of us thought he should have been getting a year ago. Sod's law they …
Liverpool V Man City | A Tactical & Stats Preview

Liverpool V Man City | A Tactical & Stats Preview

This week the billions of Manchester City come to town, and what a game it promises to be. I'm not sure what it is about City, but they don't seem to attract the same envious jealousy that Chelsea attracted when oligarch Roman Abramovich arrived on the scene and bankrolled the Stamford Bridge outfit with his odiously acquired petro-roubles. Maybe it's the fact that we get a perverse satisfaction from seeing that lot down the East Lancashire Road get their knickers …
Liverpool V Chelsea | A Super Sunday | Statistical Preview

Liverpool V Chelsea | A Super Sunday | Statistical Preview

After an international break which seemed like an eternity, next up for Liverpool is a difficult away trip to Stamford Bridge. We are of course no strangers to Chelsea considering the amount of times we have played them in the league and Champion's League over the last number of years. So expect some players to be quite familiar with each other by this stage. I would expect this game to be a cracker given the fact that both Villas-Boas and …
Liverpool V Swansea | Football Is A Simple Game? A Tactical Preview

Liverpool V Swansea | Football Is A Simple Game? A Tactical Preview

The great man Shankly once said "football is a simple game based on the giving and taking of passes, of controlling the ball and of making yourself available to receive a pass. It is terribly simple". Was there a truer word ever said? This week is Liverpool V Swansea City, two sides who really like to get the ball down and pass and move. In Kenny Dalglish and Brendan Rogers we have two managers who try to instill a certain …
Trick or Treat For Hodgson? Liverpool V West Brom | Tactical Preview

Trick or Treat For Hodgson? Liverpool V West Brom | Tactical Preview

Liverpool face West Bromwich Albion on Saturday in the early evening kick-off, and by lord its difficult not to be sarcastic with Roy Hodgson in the opposition dugout. Hodgson oversaw one of the most turbulent periods in our entire history, and the mere mention of the man’s name sends shivers down my spine. On rare occasions I’m prone to waking up in the dead of night, in a cold sweat, uttering phrases like “those people (protestors) aren’t making my job …
The Devil Is In The Detail | Liverpool V United | The Aftermath

The Devil Is In The Detail | Liverpool V United | The Aftermath

It was supposed to be the game to end all games. A Clash of the Titans. El Classico, English style. Instead we were left with a damp squib of a football match that only came to life after Gerrard hammered in a free-kick that was won by Charlie Adam, in supposed controversial circumstances. So what went wrong.  Why did a game that promised so much deliver so little. The devil (pardon the ManU pun) is in the detail as they …
A Tale Of Two Cities | Liverpool V Manchester

A Tale Of Two Cities | Liverpool V Manchester

To borrow a well known opening to a classic book; “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair”. One year on there cannot be a bigger contrast in …
Liverpool V Everton | The Friendly Derby

Liverpool V Everton | The Friendly Derby

Welcome to the friendly derby. However, judging by the amount of red and yellow cards in this fixture over the years the players don’t seem to follow the maxim of ‘friendly derby’. It’s Everton against Liverpool, a game that needs no introduction. Everton go into the game on the back of a 2-0 defeat to Man City and with a last 5 game record (LWDWL) that screams inconsistency. It’s generally thought that Everton have started the season badly yet if …
